Petite Noir's new four-part visual album, La Maison Noir (The Black House), is a story of struggle, life, death, and ultimately rebirth. The tale unfolds in the Namibian desert, a surreal visual narrative exploring Petite Noir’s identity politics of growing up in Africa, fame and “the noir wave experience”.
Produced by Iconic in collaboration with Red Bull Music South Africa, this very personal story was co-directed by Rharha Nembhard and Timothy Weyer. The film also features art direction and styling by longtime collaborator Gabrielle Kannemeyer, and original choreography and performance by Manthe Ribane . The film first screened at the Keyes Art Mile in Johannesburg on September 27, followed by premieres on MTV Africa and BET Africa.
